Ghost stories, secret histories, and urban lore abound on this haunting, mysterious, and wonderfully weird stroll through one of the most charming neighborhoods in the city. Discover the mystical symbolism hidden in everyday architecture and the subterranean histories lurking below New York City.

A cut above the usual ghost tour, this signature Boroughs of the Dead walking tour brings together history and ghost lore to show you a side of the city as you’ve never seen it before. Channel the Southern gothic vibe of the city on this macabre walking tour through the labyrinthine streets of the West Village.
